SPECIAL ARRANGEMENTS

 

***Industrial Track: Putting HCI into Best Practice***

 

The Industrial Track is designed as a means to bring together practitioners
of different industrial areas as well as practitioners with scientists.

 

Thus, the conference strongly encourages submission of industry-focused
contributions, showcases and use case studies. Submissions on a variety of
topics are sought – particularly those that identify new directions in the
practical implementation and use of Human Computer Interaction methodologies
and tools. We welcome experience reports, war stories (success and failure)
and lessons learned.

 

Submissions should meet the following conditions:

 

At least one author of each Industrial Track submission should be from a
company (rather than from a university).

 

The paper should report about industrial or other real-world experiences,
projects etc.

 

Presentations may include a short demo of the solution, methodology, or
system.

 

Contributions should concentrate on the HCI aspects behind the products
rather than being pure marketing presentations.

 

Presentations should raise awareness in the research community of the
problems of practical applications.

 

Topics include the following aspects:

 

– Multi-platform delivery / device independence – Rich internet applications

- E-learning systems and content

- Simulations

- Serious games

- Mobile applications

- e-commerce applications and HCI issues

- Web 2.0 and e-learning 2.0

- Tool & Methodology Choices, Tradeoffs, Decisions

- Business Cases on HCI (financial issues, financing issues, ROI etc.) –
Usability issues (how to do it right)

- Remote usability evaluation – Automated usability assessment (experiences
/ limitations) – Usability in production environments – Clean Room
conditions – Human-Robot interaction

 

Suggestions for further topics are welcome! Organize your own workshop!
